    Time for the Quarterly "Where do you buy your DVDR discs from" thread!

    Its got to be done, i must have asked this question a dozen times before but the market keeps changing!

    I've been buying Ridata discs from cd-rmedia.co.uk for a year now, what and who do you guys use?

    If you want cheap and decent discs try those Ritek Grade-A from SCAN. You get free shipping if you buy something else too.

    I wanted to buy Verbatim Discs but everywhere is charging a premium for it, and the shipping is nowhere near cheap.

    Don't forget to state what discs you buy, not just where you get them

    Also, are Ritek reliable again now? I remember they were highly regarded a few years back, then i thought i heard some bad publicity.

    I would like discs that last a while

    Sorry, forgot about the type of disks.

    For personal use I get verbatim every time, DVD-R and CD-R. At work we get Verbatim full face printable DVD-R and DataWrite printable CD-R.
